The thought of having to file bankruptcy made me very nervous & scared. After being recommended to call Ted just to talk & to see what my options are. I knew that The Bodow Law Firm was for me. His staff is the best, They didn't make me feel worse than I already had about my whole financial situation, instead they made it enjoyable to go there & talked to me as if I have been a long time friend. I have already recommended the lawfirm & will continue to whomever is inquiring.

Ted understands that everyone has a unique story and set of circumstances that led them to filing bankruptcy. He is not there to pass judgement, and he uses his knowlege of bankruptcy law to make the process as clean and quick as possible. He took care of all aspects of my case, so that I would have one less worry I had to think about.
Ted was there for me from the day I filed, to my meeting with the creditors, and all the way through to my discharge. Even after my discharge, he was easy to contact and willing to answer any lingering questions/ concerns I had. He also has a wonderful staff of paralegal assistants who kept me updated and were there every step of the way. I feel comfortable and hopeful knowing that my life can only get better from here.
If you want an educated and firm lawyer with a no-nonsense, no-games attitude who will GET THE JOB DONE then I would highly recommend Ted Araujo.

Having to go through financial reorganization was extremely difficult both on an emotional and logistical level. From filing the petition to my discharge, Ted and his firm treated me with empathy, respect, and perfect legal execution.

Mr. Araujo has gained a reputation in New York State as one of the best, if not the best Bankruptcy lawyer in the region. His knowledge of the bankruptcy code is immense. I personally would send friends or family members with debt issues to Mr. Araujo without hesitation.

I have had the pleasure of meeting Ted Araujo at 4 day seminar and having in-depth conversation with him. In addition, he is a colleague in the Max Gardner Bootcamp, and so I have had extensive interaction with him through that medium as well. Ted is a knowledgable and aggressive atttorney. If you have bankruptcy or mortgage problems and are in his geographic area, you coud not do better than to have Ted as your attorney.
